We are two tenant associations who joined together to defend ourselves against a corporate real estate investment hydra that seeks to expel us from our homes in order to maximize their profits.

Something Shady Afoot?

The rent stabilized tenants of 118, 120 and 122 East 4th St are no longer receiving rent invoices according to the Westminster Mgmt agents. They announced they are going Green. They have a website set up for tenants to log into to pay rent, and to schedule repairs etc. Sounds like a great idea. This service however is only available to the market rate tenants. This "Green" service is not for the rent stabilized or SCRIE tenants. Calls to the Mgmt office have confirmed this. We are just to send our rent to the usual address without any invoice, or invoice number to keep the records straight. Sounds shady. Here is the login page of the website that is blocked.

Westminster is owned by Jared Kushner. He purchased our buildings from Ben Shaoul. This is Mr. Kushner pictured with his wife Ivanka Trump.

Here is a copy of the letter with the details of the "go green initiative".
